***Infant Massage is currently meeting virtually only. Please email ParentingWithProvidence@providence.org for an invitation to the virtual class, or register online*** Registration must be done 24 hours in advance, or you will be added to the following week's class.
This introductory class teaches parents and caregivers the gentle art of massaging babies. Infant massage has been shown to help strengthen and regulate the respiratory, circulatory, and gastrointestinal functions, often relieving the discomforts of colic and gas. It also helps the baby relax and provides an opportunity for parents to engage in loving communcation with their baby. This is a hands-on class, so bring your baby to class with you, along with a soft blanket to massage your baby on, and a 100% natural oil (coconut oil and olive oil are great; mineral oil is not). Infant Massage meets every Wednesday from 11:30am-12:30pm, except on major holidays. Join in at any time.
Pre-registration is required.
